We planned to have dinner at Kanu based on their online menu which advertised Crispy Fried Calamari, one of our group's favorites. When we arrived and looked at the menu, it wasn't there. We asked the staff and were told, it's no longer on the...More

I love the variety on the menu this year. Everything from sliders, tacos to steaks. I enjoyed the soup du jour and the ceasar salad.

We had dinner here the first evening of our stay. Chose this over the main dining room as this one had the more casual menu items we wanted. The dining room's comfortable, with big hand crafted rustic wooden chairs and tables. We had fish and...More
